      what hands are you bluffing out with 77 here?

      you may fold out 88-99 sometimes, but Jx/Tx is always calling, as are fds/some gutters. so really you are turning a hand with possible showdown value into a bluff vs 88-99 since those are the only better hands that might fold

      Hey Daisuke,

      I also think you shouldn't bet the turn here. You don't really bluff anything out, you just put in money against 88, 99 and Jx. Your hand is good enough to check down and go to showdown and you can also call some turn or river bets but not too big and not against very passive players.
